Currently-on time!

Wait! What? I'm actually on time for a Currently! Yippee! I'm so excited! It's actually still Aug. 1st, here in Oregon.  If you haven't already linked up with Farley at Oh'Boy 4th Grade, be sure to do so (even if it isn't Aug. 1 when you do).

Listening: So, believe it or not, I have Sports Center on. (The hubs is still at work)  There is absolutely nothing on right now, and I just need noise-other than the AC.

Loving: I still have one month of summer left. I don't report back to school until Sept. 2. I love that I can still sleep in, even though I do have to start getting into the school mode-so much to do...

Thinking: So, here in Oregon, we have been having record-breaking high temperatures! It's been over 100 degrees the past few days.  Now, I'm used to heat, being from SoCal, but I honestly thought when I got to Oregon, my summer would normalize, and it would be in the 80's, maybe low 90's come August.  This heat is ridiculous! I wish it would just rain!! 

Wanting: I really want to get into my new classroom. This is going to be my first year in this room, first year at this school, and I know I have a TON of work to do to get it to my liking.  I have ideas for bulletin boards that I'd like to get started on, but I don't know what the bulletin board situation is. I also need to get a handle on room organization, all feel me-I'm sure.

Needing: I brought teacher's guides for each subject home in June, and I haven't looked at one. I really, really need to open those up! 

B2S RAK: Since I'm going to be the "newbie" at this school, I thought I'd drop notes in other teacher's mailboxes as pick-me-ups with kind words. Also, give my kids random notes throughout the year-just because.

So there you go! Now, be sure to link up here.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday, and have a wonderful week! And best of luck if you are starting next week!


  1. Oh man, the summer we have been having in Illinois has been FULL of rain. You can have it! We used our pool once in the month of June because of the constant rain. We have only really started using it the last few weeks because we have had hot days! I'm jealous of your late start date. I wish I still had a month of summer! Good luck with the new room! :)

  2. I'm in a new classroom this year too, so I am excited to get in there and get to work! It's hard to know how to plan out your classroom when you don't really know what it looks like! Good luck with the set up!!

  3. Sounds like it has been HOT!! Hopefully you can get in your classroom soon! I just went in my room last week for a little bit! I always enjoy getting my room set-up and organized for a new school year! I love your RAK ideas!! Have fun setting up your room whenever you are able to go in!

    1. Thank you! :) That's what I'm hoping, since that's how I am...
